Yes, here it is finally (though at least it's not a month late this time): our Golden Pen Awards! This is our official nominations topic. Thanks to everyone who contributed to our Awards topics; the Voting Method topic is still open to any suggestions.

Things you should know are:

~ No self nominations. No matter whether you think your fic will get nominated or not, you are strictly forbidden from nominating your fic for an award, or nominating yourself for any of the member awards.

~ Only nominate one fic per category. That's kind of obvious but for those who sometimes decide to overlook the obvious...

~When nominating, include author, fic name (unless it's a member award), and anything else you might need to identify what you're nominating.

~If you want to change your nominations, make a new post with your changed nominations instead of editing.

~You have to nominate at least three people, because it's stupid if you nominate the same fic for everything.

~ Deadline: 6:00 pm AEST, 12:00 am EST on 14th January. That gives you a bit more than 2 weeks.

30th December 2003, 10:19 PM
I hate to burst my own bubble, but Clash of the Entities isn't Non-Pokemon; it's a crossover fic with Pokemon included. I'll let the mods make the ruling, but I'm fairly sure it's ineligible in that category.

And Mewfour, lol. You really shouldn't base the entire judgement of a nomination just by one person reading and enjoying your fic. I'm sure plenty of other people like it as well. As for me, I just thought it went great for several of the categories, so I nominated it. Ah, well. I'm through trying to convince you not to nominate me. XD

31st December 2003, 08:30 AM
Okay, Clash of the Entities scrapped...

Changes: (I really should decide properly before I post...)
Cliffhanger: When Ash loses Pikachu, What Dreams are Made Of, mr_pikachu

And Mist, "pretty much all of WDC" isn't a plot twist :P

Quick question: When someone wins an award here, are they allowed to mention it in their sig?

Hey, how am I supposed to know! I've never won one before. So sue me. :P Then again, don't. You might actually win. :o

Gavin Luper
9th January 2004, 12:58 AM
There's nothing wrong with doing that, MP. If you win an award, you should be proud of it, I think. People have done it in the past, anyway, so it's OK.

Pikachu101: We've ruled that WDC iosn't a comedy, and for "Most original" and "best overall" in the characters category, we mean single characters...
Ozzy: You've made a small mistake in your post. :D

Thanks everyone for nominating, the voting topic should be up on Friday!

mistysakura
15th January 2004, 11:29 PM
Welcome to the voting stage of our first Golden Pen Awards! Thanks to everyone who nominated or suggested things in the Writers' Lounge topics. Unfortunately, we decided to stick to PM voting, so sorry to those who came up with other systems.

We're using the 3-2-1 system, like we did in previous awards. Your first preference in winning fic will receive three points, your second preference will get 2 points and your third preference will get one point. Please set your PMs out so that your first preference is up the top, and your second preference is directly beneath that, and so on. PMs go to Ozzy or me.

The deadline is 6 pm 31st January AEST, and 12 am on the same day EST.

Rules
~ Don't vote for yourself (obvious, huh?) Don't make fake accounts to vote for yourself because we will catch you, and there will be punishment.
~ Vote fairly, its always a good idea to read fics that you don't know much about before voting for your favourites.
~ Please vote on your opinions of the fic, not on the member (unless its member awards and then still don't judge it on the member). These awards are not a popularity contest, please vote fairly and based on the writing skills not on whether you like the person or not.
~ Do not ask people to vote for you in your fic or via Email or IM. Cause naggers don't deserve your votes.

I know I'm stating the obvious), and if either of our PM boxes are full, just post here. Have fun writing long PMs, and good luck everyone!

EDIT: This is my seventh edit... sad, huh? I'm pretty sure all the mistakes are gone by now... By the way, Catching Up with Chris was removed from "Most Promising" because... well, it's over. And if you couldn't tell, Ozzy wants votes.

Best Non-Human Character
K-9, That's LIfe! ~ classy_cat18
The "I" should not be capitalized. Yeah, I'm getting picky. Meh. :D


Oh, and whenever you do the little "é" thingy in "Pokémon", it's getting messed up on the post. Just thought I'd let you know.


Well, I guess that's about it. Good luck with the awards, and I hope I can come up with a more suitable method for next time! See ya! :wave:

LV: Voting closes 31st January, 6pm AEST, and 12am EST. It's somewhere in the post. I hope you can work from that, because I know you're from neither of these time zones.
Also, post links here if you want to.

mr_pikachu: Fanfic Mod Contest? You'll have to ask Ozzy for that one. It was a bit of a joke really...
Typos and stuff fixed -- word processing can get annoying...

The link for my fic is in my sig, and that should just about prove it.

And there's another error... In the Best Cliffhanger, you put When Drew is told by Morty that he is destined to lose the crystal, it's actually he's told he will lose to crystal. And Crystal should be capitalized, cause she's a person. Thank you.

Eh heh... I don't want to sound bratty or anything but... erm, did anyone see the fight scenes in my fic? Because I put a lot of effort into them *sweats from nervousness*. And it is a dark fic. But I know that there are many fics that didn't make a cut, like ones by Manectric Trainer which I thought were pretty good despite some grammar errors (I see one nomination though). I'm also kind of aprehensive to the "Best overall" and Best writer" categories... but that's just me. I guess I should start reading more fics and nominating next time around ^_^;.

So, mistysakura, I would be eternally grateful if you could just fix up that tiny little mishap---just so people won't become permanently confused :D.

Wow, my first award! That's amazing! ^_^
Thanks a lot, everyone! I don't think Erin and Timper would believe this if they saw it. :D

Also, I see how many of the nominated fics came quite close to getting awards, so I think this says a lot for the quality of all of them. :) So, everyone who got nominated, keep up the great work!

On other notes, I'm glad to see Shockwave got the award he deserved.

As for Tara getting the Awards award, I can't say I'm surprised, but I think she has earned it. I've read Lapras Valley High and as much as she's posted of Full Moon, and I agree that she's an excellent writer.

BTW, how can someone who got an award without writing a fic consider herself a 'poor mortal'? http://www.geocities.com/gsteren/Faces/wink.txt

Whoo! I'm officially the best newcomer to the boards! Fear me! MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

I must say I'm surprised that in everything else I was nominated for, I placed second... and that in two of them, only one vote seperated me from sharing first place. How fun.

At least, I'd like to thank Brit Chris, both for nominating me for a few awards, for blessing us all with a new fic of his, and for being the biggest part of shaping my writing style into what it is.

By the way, I noticed in the Best Chapter award that chapter 37 of Lapras Valley High won that. But where can I find it? I searched for the fic for a long time (using the Search function) without success, ended up finding it from a link mr_pikachu posted somewhere in the Writer's Lounge, but that stopped at chapter sixteen or so, and I couldn't find the rest anywhere... basically, where is it?

Though I'm glad I got 7 votes, I'm still a tad disappointed that I never got any nomination for it being a dark fic or the fight scenes. Whatever, congrats to the ones who won, blah blah, have a nice day.

*gasps* Yay! I won two awards! I would like to thank everyone who voted for me and believed in me during my little period of discouragement. *hugs everyone* This is the happiest moment I've had this week! Might as well be this month, too. I'm starting classes again. But right now I feel like writing!

Arigatoo gozaimasu minasan!! ^_^ Best Trainer Fic award... wow, that brings back the memories. :) Well, hopefully TEL will be done by the next awards, and won't even be able try for another one of these.

Wait, what am I saying? I haven't written a chapter for almost half a year, and the wait between the last two chapters was 8 months. :D Oh no... XD Well, thanks again for the award, and thanks in advance to all my readers for their generous patience. ^_^; Don't worry... I've got 39 brainstormed already. Really.

Well, the first third of it anyway. :P

CONGRATS TO ALL THE WINNERS AND NOMINEES! :) There were some close matches in there, and a lot of great fics missed out on an award by just 1 or 2 votes. To you guys, don't get discouraged... just keep writing. Maybe you'll get that #1 spot next awards... or maybe you won't. But just keep writing anyway. ;) Cool beans.

Wow, Lune came in second as best fic overall against someone whose fic is like, famous. I'm flattered. And Shockwave got an award! Woo! Thanks to people who nominated and voted for me. Oh, and congrats to everyone who got nominated/received an award.

BTW, why aren't there categories for Short Stories and Poetry? They're also literature...

It’s a stone!
It’s an imbecile!
No, it’s Super-Psychotic Man, here to tell you about the one mistake you made in the entire printing of the awards!!! :rolleyes:


Best Villain
Giovanni, When Destinies Collide ~ Citrus Crush Chikorita 9
Entei, Lisa the Legend ~ Gavin Luper 10


Shame on you! *hits mistysakura with a rolled up newspaper*
*gets punched in the face*


Alas, but Super-Psychotic Man must leave you now. Farewell! Must… fix… broken… nose…

*dramatic clothing change*

Okay! Now that I, mr_pikachu, am back, I’d like to congratulate ZeldaFan20 and classy_cat18! They won one award each and shared another, but we all know they deserved at least five apiece, right! :yes: And I’d like to congratulate myself for my third-place finish in Most Dedicated Reader! Woo hoo! :D

Congratulations everyone! Looks like we got a good voter turnout yet again, that's always nice to see ^_^. I'm surprised and proud that DM got best original cast. i kinda like that award, cuz the cast is the center of most of my fiction writing. gotta work on the other stuff too though! and i'm surprised to get more votes than lapras valley high for that, cuz mist's got a cast there that any television program would die to have ;).

keep writing everybody, there's always another one of these in half a year. plenty of time to get going on some writing ^_^. and of course a huge thank you to mistysakura and oz, thanks guys :P

Wow I am shocked! Mysteries That Await did pretty good even though it didn't win but it was in second and third a lot and it's just as good. I am shocked on winning Best Dedicated Writer!:o I don't know how that happened but its cool! Also Best Rounded Memeber was the one I wanted to win and I did and I love it! THanks so much! It makes me want to write, rate, and read more! Congrads to all the other winners!

7 awards? Kinda suprised, didn't think mine deserved that many at all this time.

Well, thanks for everyone who voted. Nice to see more variety in winners this year. Congrats to Tara for getting 15 awards.

And just a quick apology: Sorry for WDC being so crap overall and loaded with sap early on. In retrospect, a lot of it is pure trash, and for that, I apologise sincerely. I will make up for such mistakes in Fallen Angels, the seuqel. You can rest assured of that.

However, winning Best Dark and Best Romance was nice. Since I love those 2 genres, that was fulfilling.

Yay, funniest character - Jess.
Best character of a board member - Andrew
Best World :D

3 Awards :D

Thank you to ALL Who voted and a special thanks to all of my EBTV readers. Ug, recently I've been reading through the first few chapters and its absolutely awful. I vow to go through it all again and fix up the first 10 chapters to my current standards. I am SO Sorry for how bad it is.

But I deserve no recognition for getting this started, it was all Misty Sakura. Every last bit! I say everyone give a great bit "THANK YOU MS!" but not multiple schlorisis... but Misty Sakura K :)

SCORE!!! Once again I am strange!!! Wahoo! "Yippee Yay Weeeeeeeedlyhoodney!"
uh...
Anywho, thanks for voting... 4 ME! and thanks for nominating... ME! j/k but not really I'm glad I won something, but I'm still kinda pissed that after 2 1/2 years I've only been nominated in best comedy once... in 2001[if memory serves, which it probably doesn't, I stopped paying it last week.]
...Thus concludes my, uh, being here-ness. Buh bye now.

O.o... u gave me 15 awards?

when was the last time i posted in Full Moon anyway?

I feel as though I dont deserve them, mainly because I've had a severe case of writers block latley and producing a chapter has been like dealing with extreme constapation.

It just wont come out.

But thank you so much to everybody who voted for me! Thank you so much for actualy remembering that I breathe, and thank you for thinking my fic was good enough to read. ^^;;

I guess i figured seeing that my fic has been down in page 5 for a while, it wouldn't win any awards but thaink you very much for still voting for it.

And to everybody esle, congratulations! Everybody here has their own style of writing, and its great to see it be recognized! Even a nomination is a credit, people think your fic is good enough to be nominated for, so be proud of it peoples!
